the time about what we are going to find wasteful spending. this is a chart, the u.s. debt clock, and viewers can see it, you can look into the cameras with viewers. the u.s. national debt, $16 trillion and counting. also, as you look at that, you look at $3.5 trillion in spending this last fiscal year. you talk about programs you can cut, but it is clear the three biggest drivers are medicare, social security, and defense, six out of 10 federal dollars. what are the tough choices that you are willing to make when it comes to prioritizing cuts in benefits or defense, because it is clear that the only three areas you can make substantive differences, and for the tea party, the people who put you in office, state how you would make the tough choices. where do you cut? >> you included the overseas contingency operations. now we are now out of iraq, that does not count. my opponent said he would not support. cut the defense budget over the next 10 years. it is the sequestration that i am against. 62% of the budget is net interest on the debt. one of the things, stop with a payroll ta
, it was a state was created out of new york and new hampshire. they fought over it. it has its reflection in the u.s. constitution. the article on the closet talks about how states will be made in the constitution, is merely a result of the conflict that we had with new hampshire and vermont. how is vermont going to be a separate state? so we had have that influence on the constitution making of that country. the cover image is a detail. if you look at the whole of it, it has everything about vermont that we need to know. it has an industry going there. it has a church and a meeting house. it has a microcosmic view of what the state is about. the mountains have not only been a geographic figure, but it is an agricultural state. everything that is going on in the state, it is somehow captured. it became the perfect image for we are trying to accomplish in the book by showing the variety. not this one thing, the connectedness to the east and the west end an important part of the development that goes on. it might surprise people about vermont in this one marvelous painting. >> in 1927, a flood caused
.n. backing and there is no way it could be the u.s. alone, imperialistic attack to try to scoop up resources for yourself. >> hearing the talk, i have seen this movie before. saying that they will pick legitimate people within the country to do that -- tom friedman back it up, please. i saw. i saw the first time. you guys were all in school at the time. let's just let things happen the way they are going to happen. what other people worry about their own country. we have not problems in this country. >> jim, did you have anything to say? >> yes, i do have one question i can ask, it was george w. bush who wanted to do the libyan intervention, would you have supported it then? >> yes. >> okay, let's do something related to military and foreign policy and that is the issue of military spending. many on the left criticize the right for wanting to spend on the military print mitt romney has proposed that we spend $2 trillion in additional spending. lots of things, wanting to balance a budget, the annual deficit runs between one and $1.5 billion annually. i will start with you, bill. even with oba
. that is the u.s. senator i will be if you send me and i have a chance to serve. >> thank you. >> thank you for watching. susan and i have been listening to the people of virginia. they want leaders to work together to get our economy back on the right track, create jobs, stocks washington spending, and restore the american dream. i want to be virginia's senator. tim wants to be president obama's senator. he went around the country giving partisan speeches. instead of staying home and dealing with economic crisis, tim chose to leave. on every significant issue, he has been for the obama policies that have been hurting virginians. from the harmful energy policies that are devastating communities, to our electric bills skyrocketing. obamacare that is endangering the access of medicare to our seniors. now, this sequestration deal is threatening another 200,000 virginia jobs. in washington, you deserve a strong, independent voice. if i have the honor of serving as your united states senator, i will work hard to build a society where hard work is rewarded and every american has an opportunity to
years in the u.s. economy, we have added more than 5 million jobs in the private sector. so it's been growing at around 2 million a year. under the romney call, what he's calling for to get 12 million, that would have to go up to 3 million a year from 2 million. a lot of people think that regardless of what happens in washington, you would probably see something along the lines of those, of those kind of rates because the economy will move its way back to the trend growth of 3%, 3.5%. i think one, you have to hope that the macroeconomy goes with you. two, i think the policy can make a difference on the margin. and there's a difference of opinion between the two camps, romney's view that high income tax cuts and deregulation lead to growth. the obama view that it's investments in infrastructure, the work force, things of that nature that will lead to faster growth. and you know, you have to pick one or the other. >> and then quickly, yes or no, will voters take these numbers, these jobs numbers just days before election day, into the voting booth with them? >> probably not. i mean, cer
under nixon, and they realized that too late to launch -- trying to help humphrey, and instead the u.s. allies ..n saigon were much here calculating and worked to help nixon win, and he won be a very razor-thin victory. >> thank you very much for your good work. i have a question about the intelligence reports, because before the united states goes into a war with any country, they have to go to the d based on intelligence report. so my question is, is there any politics like on the intelligence, from the intelligence, or they get -- just didn't get it right? >> we just found out ha >> we just found out recently in the national security archives, some thing like two years, if you look at the goal of tonkin documents, like the attack never happened. this gave lbj the blank check to wage war in vietnam. he knew north vietnamese could not carry out the second attack and so again you can see so many similarities with what happened with the war in iraq. in short, what i can say is the gulf of tonkin documents reveal that they were doctored. >> was it benefit of hindsight and research, were
about at the top of the trees. that's what we found. the cost was close to 30 billion u.s. dollars. how we organize, well, we have something similar that you have. we have the national emergency office under the internal affair minister and they have offices in the different counties, in the different places in chile this emergency office request aid directly to the joint chief of staff and joint chief of staff to the army, navy or air force and then we move the pieces to put the aid where they need it. the scenario, the beginning when we face this was the same thing we are talking about in this seminar. the necessity was access because everything was, the delivery was absolutely hampered because of the roads so we have to clean it. water, food, electricity and communications. another need at that time to do that is field hospital generators, housing, sat coms, purifying water systems and mobile bridges. so the force was at the beginning just to distribute the aid and at the end start doing law enforcement when the government declared catastrophe and the president gave us the author

it is sad the recently we have looked at government services as being separate from competency. the u.s. senate is a job. it is a complex job. legal issues, economic issues, financial issues. i own six businesses. everyone here in maine and across the country talks about jobs in the abstract. i will do this. secretary summer's talks about working at a hotel three decades ago -- secretary summers talks about working at a hotel three decades ago. >> can you answer the question specifically? how many people you employ and do you employ -- provide healthcare? >> approximately 60 people and we do provide health care. my daughter is 21 and benefits from the affordable care act. she is on my health care plan. i was at my office at 6:00 a.m. when the other candidates were plotting political strategy. business experience is relevant as opposed to people outside business to talk about it in the past -- the abstract. >> i have a business register here in maine. we sell nationally and we manufacture in china. we have 10 representatives who sell nationally and we contracts to businesses in the state
behind such a wide swath of destruction how will the devastation effect the already fragile u.s. housing market? >> brian: let's ask ceo of sharpen institute. alex, what short-term for the housing market that many people believe was on its way back? >> the housing market has been on its way back. we have three things that are going to change in the short-term. one of the things affected in the northeast is of course there is just not enough houses. we have a 50 year low of inventory right now. so where we were seeing a recovery, we're now going to see some struggle just due to the incredible damage. this is the second costliest hurricane in the history of the united states. so, when you look at the numbers, $50 billion in damage, it's going to take a while for the northeast to recover. overall, however, the housing market in the u.s. is strong due to investors and banks finally moving through distressed inventory. short-term we will see an effect. long term this shouldn't effect the entire housing market. >> steve: short-term you are talking about the next three to six months. all right.
the female engagement team. with our interagency partners, the u.s. department of state, danish and british governments and of course the afghans, additionally we reached out to the private sector for partnerships, and not for profits to deliver things that we weren't capable of delivering or to cover gaps that arose as we implemented the plan. we implemented the plan through 17 teams through helman and our two female engagement teams. this is actually just scrolling pictures. sometimes a picture says a thousand words and i don't want to take you down the whole history of a year but i wanted to talk to you about how we framed this plan. this plan was framed into 5 pillars and the 5 pillars were students and parents, we attempted to build buy in and assure safety among the students. there was lots of fear of reprisals. by sending your kids to school there was fear that the taliban was going to knock on your door and let you know that that wasn't allowed. previously the taliban had instituted a medrossas so their only forms of education were religious schools and those are religious scho
u.s. air boris it's not down tighter than fort knox. i was not expect dean to see this peasant kind of plot along in front of my airplane. he was 20 feet in front of the jet leading a donkey. i thought, what am i doing here? to donkey kong to relieve himself in front of the airplane and they both should her head at me and walked off. so there's some funny things like that. it basically traces them the path of at least my path as a fighter pilot. i came back from egypt, i've been overseas for six years at the good life. i lived in europe. you guys in the military know you get to travel and do things. so most of the capital cities, you know, a lot of neat things you don't normally see. used to keep a horse by the pyramids. i mean, how cool is that to go riding into the peer nodes. but i wanted to come home. i have not a sonnet worker in a long time and haven't ended to resort to this open past 8:00 at night for a long time and i wanted to come home and i did. i got selected to attend the fighter weapons school out of malice, which is the air force version of the navy school. i darted
.8%, the unemployment rate, from september. showing 171,000 jobs added in october, this according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick, and it was down the month before. but unemployment is staying basically around 8%. if you count the people of -- who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are unemployed right now. we have to address their needs and concerns, and make sure they have jobs over the next four years. by producing 12 million jobs, a lot of these people will be put back to work. if we continue the policies of the last four years, i am afraid we will see the next norm for unemployment in this country will be 8%, and the unemployment figures are going to stay around that 20 million figure. i think we can do a lot better. i think governor romney certainly has a program to do that, he and certainly in ohio we have proven that it can be done. host: let us go to judith, on the democratic line. you are on. caller:
